Product Liability Attorney

Utica & Clinton, NY

A company that designs and/or manufactures a product which poses an unreasonable risk of harm may be liable to a person who is injured by the use of that product. You do not have to be the purchaser of the product to have a claim. You only have to be a foreseeable user who was injured while using the product for its intended purpose at the time of injury.

Expert opinion is required to support most so-called “products liability” claims, and the sooner an expert is hired, such as an attorney, the better.

It is crucial that the injury-causing product be preserved in the condition it was in at the time of the incident so that an expert can examine the product on your behalf. The plaintiff’s lawyer will typically ask the Court to grant an Order directing that the product be preserved intact and further directing that the plaintiff’s expert be permitted to inspect the product.

Examples of claims based upon defective products include the following:

  • Failure to Properly Design or Manufacture Machinery (for example, failure to provide a proper guard to protect against injury)
  • Defective Design or Manufacture of Cars, Trucks, or Motorcycles
  • Defective Design or Manufacture of Safety Devices (for example, safety belts, scaffolds, harnesses, hoists)
  • Defective Design or Manufacture of Ladders
  • Dangerous Drugs
  • Defective Design or Manufacture of Seat Belts
  • Defective Design or Manufacture of Surgical Devices (for example, surgical mesh, hip replacement materials, surgical plates)
